Fast action saves Lynn councilor

LYNN -- City Councilor-at-Large Brian Field considers himself lucky to be alive after suffering a heart attack with such a low survival rate that it is referred to in the medical community as a widow maker. 

Field, 44, a funeral director at Solimine Funeral Homes, said he began feeling some discomfort in his upper chest Thursday night after walking his dog, Cooper, but since the feeling of tightness went away after resting on the couch with a glass of water, he did not think much of it. 

However, when he woke up early the next morning, it became apparent that the previous night's discomfort was not just indigestion, as he had surmised before going to bed.
